CHIRK Leisure Centre will begin reopening next week after an announcement issued by the Welsh Government.

The centre, in Chapel Lane, is set to start its phased reopening on Monday, August 17.

It is one of four leisure centres in Wrexham which will be reopening this month, with Wrexham Waterworld, Gwyn Evans Leisure and Activity Centre and Queensway Stadium all beginning their phased return.

The second phase of reopening will see other centres in the area reopen in September.
